Fake WI conservatives on fresh road-borrowing binge

It's a concrete addiction:

The Walkerites cannot say "no" to borrowing for the road-builders - -

Scott Walker asks lawmakers for $200 million more borrowing for roads
- - even when core Waukesha County conservative constituents, protecting their wallets, do say "no."
WisDOT delays costly project, Delafield says "good."
Well, well, well, whaddya know: after years of Wisconsin over-spending and over-building on highway projects as the roads we have continue to pit and crumble - - and while phony conservative at the State Capitol are scrambling to find even more hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars and debt to throw the road-builders' way - - one conservative community in the heart of conservative Waukesha County is saying one expensive interchange expansion should be shelved for a long time
Little wonder that the same crowd which preaches small government and fiscal restraint for everyone else is also spending another $177 million on a new office palace on prime Madison west side real estate for state 'transportation' (read: road-building) operations:
The Wisconsin State Journal captures the capture and surrender of conservatives unwilling or unable to limit the reach of the highway-government complex and its grasp of taxpayer dollars:
Rep. Dean Knudson, R-Hudson, said he cast a reluctant vote in favor of the project, which he described "as a nine-story testament to that simple fact that no matter how hard we try, no matter what we think of it, government tends to grow."

Maybe you should talk to the Democrats who are going to step up to make the vote bipartisan.
